Goose Fair 2019 
A very big 
thank you 
to everyone who helped in so many different ways to make the Goose Fair such a success again this year. 
The church was filled with a wide range of wonderful crafts, jewellery, bygones, home-made and home-grown produce – there was something for everyone. There was a very interesting exhibition by several local village organisations, together with Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, showing what they are each doing to support our community and environment. 
There were also delicious refreshments, fun children’s games and the chance to win a raffle or tombola prize. 
All was much appreciated and enjoyed by the many visitors to the Fair, and also raised much needed funds for the upkeep of our beautiful parish church. 
Thank you one and all!

Coffee and Company 
 
Sadly we shall no longer be meeting for coffee on Monday mornings. Over the years we have been very pleased  
to welcome regular attenders and occasional visitors, but as numbers have been falling for some time now  
we have reluctantly decided to close. 
 
We are grateful to those who have supported us for a long time. 
 
St Laurence Church will continue to be open on a daily basis, in daylight hours, for anyone who wants to come and look round. 
 
St Laurence Church is now on Facebook!
